As part of my recent fiddling with Freeway 7 (and as an investigation into a site project for a local community group) I’ve been looking at simple CMS tools. I hadn’t tried Pulse (http://pulsecms.com) before, and I’m kinda kicking myself for that.
It is dead simple, requiring just copy/pasting short bits of code into markup items placed on the page or inserted into HTML boxes. (The Freeway page filenames must end in .php rather than .html, so you’ll have to upload (or muck about with MAMP) to see your efforts in a browser.)
Better still, earlier today I sent the developer a query about getting the effect of two separate blogs. He wrote back that while the details of how would be a support request (I hadn’t yet paid for a license) he could tell me that it was possible.
Best of all, this Spring Pulse went ‘free to try’ in a suck-it-and-see approach to sales. See the site for details, and if you use it don’t forget to support the developer.
Just thought I’d share all this, as it seems likely to make things significantly easier for my current project!
After i read this post I started to experiment with Pulse Pro for a site that i will be updating shortly and i have to say it is very simple to use. I had an issue with a problem associated with having more than one Pulse account set up on the same domain. As i had a paid for version, i sent in an email explaining the issue and within 72 hours (over the week end) the problem was fixed.
Excellent Support on a product that does what it says …
I found an earlier copy of Pulse 3.4 and got it working. Do you know where the styling for the main image and the thumbs for galleries is stated? I want to tighten up some of the padding between images.
